Maine Windjammer Cruises
Who cares if you don’t know what the difference between port and starboard is, or what to do on a sailboat when someone yells “come about!” After an overnight cruise on a windjammer, you’ll be fluent in sail speak. With 12 schooners that make up the small but mighty fleet, ranging in size and styles, this is hands-down one of the very best ways to experience life on the Atlantic—and learn the ropes, literally! Through the summer and early fall, the majestic historic vessels set sail from Rockland and Camden with up to 40 passengers on board (some ships accommodate as few as six) for memorable overnight cruises, which are renowned for their delicious food too.
If you just want to keep to terra firma and gaze on the billowy sails from shore, there are numerous windjammer events in the area during the season, many of which you can enjoy from land’s end. For more info: www.sailmainecoast.com.
